contradictory public statements by the president, the secretary of state and the u.n. ambassador on libyan terrorist attacks. state department officials telling a house investigative committee that they never told anyone in the obama administration or anyone else for that matter, the terrorist attacks in benghazi were linked in any way whatsoever to an anti-muslim internet video. a video that the president himself over a three-week period of the cause of those attacks. someone in the administration is clearly not telling the truth. the house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa, is not pleased. the president cannot be pleased. the public statements are contravened by both evidence and testimony now before the oversight committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is sense

for the embassy attack. in a speech at the united nations, two weeks later, he blamed them. >> he went to the u.n. and said six times talked about the youtube video. look, if we hit by terrorists we will call it for what it is: a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment regarding him. shouldn't we have one regarding our ambassador in benghazi? >> there is a marine detachment at embassy in tripoli but not the consulate where ambassador stevens was killed. >>trace: wendell, each side now is accusing the other side of playing politics. >>reporter: republicans say that the administration underestimated al qaeda and tried to cover up the intelligence failure. there were a couple of attacks in benghazi before the 9/11 including at the consulate. the white house says republicans are trying to make the president take 9 blame for something that never rose to his level. >> the attack by in what is more likely a legal attack by republicans, in this case by congressman ryan, was to try to suggest that the president and the white house was responsible for assessing security at a diplo
there heard that the consulate was under attack, and they went there. they didn't h u.n. ker down were in safety, they rushed there to go help. this is the american way. we go where there is trouble. phraus. >> we go where we are needed.

take a look at what has happened in the last few weeks. they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six times the youtube video. if we are hit by terrorists, we are going to call it. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. should we have the marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi? we knew there was an al qaeda cell. this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they are blaming the romney- ryan ticket. we had the same position before the withdrawal. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice-president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. he failed to get the agreement. that is what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude. including your son. we also want to make sure that we do not lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, we agree with
point was the response to the initial question on libya. >> they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this is because of a protest and youtube video. >> that is exactly what we were told by intelligence community. >> by who? >> the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened. they changed their assessment. >> joe scarborough this morning, as well as in "the daily standard," they said this that biden throws the intelligence community under the bus. what's your thought here? was the vice president not aware of the congressional testimony that happened on tuesday? the full tick tock that had come out? it didn't sync with his answer, necessarily. >> i think there will be more to be said on this today. i'm not going to prejudge what might come out of the state department. let me just say this. what i find disgusting, and american people should find disgusting, on the night this was happening, before we knew the ambassador had been killed, mitt romney decided to politicalize a tragedy in the middle east. >> that is what the vice president said.
of state hillary clinton and the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. so what are they going to say? there is a separation between those two and the rest of the state department and the white house? what side will they be on? >> steve: because to many, it looks like there has been some sort of cover-up going on and hillary clinton at the ends of her tenure as secretary of state, the last thing she wants, 'cause she wants to run for president, is a full blown scandal. but that's what -- >> gretchen: the last thing president obama wants as well is a full blown scandal 27 days from the election. >> steve: sure. but the thing is if her state department is out there, you know, pushing through susan rice, it was spontaneous, it was about the movie when it wasn't, the one thing that hillary is on the griddle for responsibility wise is the security. would they all be dead today if they had the proper security? a lot of people are asking themselves that. >> brian: right. by the way, i am looking for a scandal. so if you're interested. by the way, mitt romney was getting -- he's getting more
including u.s. ambassador to the u.n., did interview after interview connecting the attack to anger over a movie. bill: want to start with peter doocy live in washington. the why is the state department now saying the attack not spontaneous? >> reporter: because lethality and number of armed attackers is unprecedented in recent diplomatic history. plus there was no protest in front of consulate on the night of the attack. the people inside the compound heard explosions before 9:00 p.m. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a plea planned attack. -- preplanned attack. it is not reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> reporter: we know the administration did internally classify as a terrorist attack within 24 hours. we expect to hear a lot more three hours from now in a house oversight committee hearing just across the street that is being billed simply as the security failures of benghazi. bill. bill: i'm looking at four witnesses. any heads up what they will say, peter? >> we heard a little bit from two of
few weeks, and they sent the u.n. ambassador got to say that this is because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this is a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech, he said six times he talked about the youtube video. look, if we are hit by terrorists, will call up what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment regarding him. should we have it very detachment regarding our benghazi, please renew there was an al qaeda with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. >> all right. rachel, who won that exchange quick >> one thing who won the debate and i think that was martha raddatz. a very aggressive moderator. didn't interrupt, but kept them on point impressed both of them hard. he pressed trying very hard on his budget numbers and tax plan and doesn't not work? does this add up? triggered by repeatedly from her. the interesting thing is the question of optics we were talking about before. there's also the question of how ryan's performance will play. it is a presidential? did that ex
at what has happened, they said the u.n. ambassador to say that this was because of a protest in the youtube video. it took the president two weeks to the knowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six times he talked about the youtube video. if we are hit by terrorists, we're going to call it. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi? this is becoming more troubling by the day. the first blame the youtube video, now they're blaming the romney-ryan ticket. host: talk about the role of the intelligence community. guest: clearly, they have a huge role. you rely on your intelligence community to give you that information. we're talking about a country where come up for decades, we did not have access. a country that is in the middle of civil war. i consider environment where the information could be changing by the minute. if the administration says the information they were operating under, that is information that will come out in the process, that is
. there is no question as senor corker said, at least by the momp ambassador,oric me ambassador to the u.n. everyone ew it wasn't true. that becomes the real question of why in the wld would an ambassador make a statement that was n supported en a few hos after thett rt spo fiayfter the attack. bill: you have three principle players here, you have susan rice, hillary clinton and the president, right? are you suggesting that any of these individuals, or all of them, lied about this? wl, ct w gng go f ssori rice' false statement. you have to understand something. the ason i called my committee back during the time when most members are home campaigning is because i thought it was so ri, usire that weet the refmbassies and consulates around the world and if this has been repeated even once, and i don't act quickly, then i failed to meet my obligation. if they need more resources, i need to make sure they ask for themnd tm. a ptefalngs told, effectively, don't even ask for more resources because we won't support that. you'll see that today in the hearingment. bill: if you believe you were misled and there
. >> i agree with you. with that, i now move that the u.n. classified document of september 11, 2012 appearing above the signature of the ambassador be placed in the record. without objection, so ordered. the staff will distribute it. additionally, i move that the documents of march 28, 2012 we place in the record. without objection, so ordered. additionally -- and these will have to be printed -- the document of august 2, 2012 and of july 9, 2012 be placed in the record. without objection, so ordered. >> mr. chairman, to be clear, we already have the documents? >> in real time, a whistleblower has provided these documents. we confirm these documents are identical to the documents being withheld. it is the determination of the chair that these documents were responsive, on classified, and appropriate for discovery. >> i was just asking if we already had the documents. >> if you notice, i am looking at one on an ipad. we have some and others. they will be circulated to bauxites. they are now -- they will be circulated to both sides. they are now part of the hearing. ambassador, i do n
. >> eight days later. a u.n. ambassador who has no responsibility for embassies, intelligence, security at embassies, she was saying spontaneous, a demonstration that got out of hand. where did they come up with these things when everybody's country gut reaction was gee, it is september 11th. it is terror. bill: this is october 10 on the calendar. >> a month later. bill: 26 days away from an election. how many of these questions will be answered in that time, any? >> i that you don't know but i do think there will be a huge paper trail of these things. the government doesn't do anything one-on-one. they do it of course, everybody get as blind carbon copy or everybody get as carbon copy of tease e-mails. i think you will see more and more people come forward. because look, americans die. why did they die? was it a political decision? was it just criminal negligence? i don't think this is something that fell between the cracks, gee they weren't weren't focusing on security on a most dangerous part of the world on a date on an anniversary that everyone in the world knows about. bill: thank
to be struggling under another u.n. envoy. the problem that is the u.s. and many others had hoped that by working with russia, because of the dependence on russia for a lot of the military equipment and other support that they could convince assa do end the repression if he did not step aside begin to think about a transition. that approved unable. they were not able to sustain that efficient. they argued and continued to side with the syrian line that this is, these are dangerous foreign fighters. this is a terrorist campaign, and that others are provoking this, that the syrian regime is simply trying to defend the sovereignty. the diplomatic course is not promising still, but i think neededs to be renewed commitment to the effort to tri to work the european union and the gulf states to tri to end this because what we have seen now with the potential for the side withening, widening conflict. the other option is the notion of equipping the syrian army directly. this has been an idea that has been out there for sim time. they have been getting weapons. the u.s. has revided at least openly said it
. his birth certificate is a lie. why have we gone to the u.n. all the time to get this one world tin? i want th -- one world thing? read the rise and fall of the third reich and you will see this guy is paralleling everything that hitler did. a special army and so on. host: thanks for the call. i do want to clear up one thing. the president has not talked about his father, but his grandfather did serve in world war ii and his speech is available on our website, c- span.org. guest: i think it goes to show the polarization in this country that we thought might go away upon barack obama's election. this country was heavily divided during the george w. bush years. the partisanship still exists today, both sides. ohio is an example of where getting out the vote will be an interesting barometer for both sides. in 2010, republicans swept every state. less than 12 months ago we had a referendum on senate bill 5, highly controversial, where governor kasich ltd. unions' right to collectively bargain. the state went to vote on that. a 51% ohioans voted to repeal it. this state swings and its wings
for the u.s. or the syria or the u.n. or really anybody else to talk to about cutting a deal or finding a way out other than continuing bloodshed. can you talk about the political opposition? >> that's a great question as i said in the talk. the only absentee is the great debating society. the national congress, the opposition group created in the aftermath of the revolution. these guys have no support on the ground. people don't know them. their names and faces, inside the country, and they think we don't care. they are not in the country. they distributed aid, and they are quiet, but they are not anywhere close to the front lines, not gaining what they need, there's a lot of fighting, and a lot resigned. the islamists are taking over, certain facts are supported, you know, qatar and the french are trying to really mold them into some type of cohesive organization, and it's not working or going anywhere. i don't think you'll see anything out of the snc come out. that said, there are certain people that, you know, i think would be good leaders, the people i've met with good ideas. they
voted for the power because he said he needed it, not to go to war but to keep the trainee, the u.n. in line to keep sanctions on iraq and not let them be lifted. i a long with dick lugar before we went to war said if we were to go to war without our allies, without the kind support we needed, we would be there for a decade, costing us tens of billions of dollars. john mccain said that would be okay. i don't have the stomach for genocide when it comes to darfur. we can now impose a no-fly zone. it's within our capacity. we can lead nato if we're willing to take a hard stand. we can't, i've been in those camps in chad. i've seen the suffering, thousands, tens of thousands of people have died and they are dying. we should rally the world to act and we should demonstrate it by our own movement to provide helicopters to get those 21,000 forces of the african union in their now to stop this genocide. >> moderator: thank you, senator. governor. palin: it's so obvious on a washington outsider. summit is not used to the way you guys operate because you, you voted for the war, and now you op
democrats. they were liberal democrats. j. william fullbright. bill clinton's mentor. big supporter of the u.n.. albert gore sr., al gore's father and all of these characters, were ferocious opponents of joe mccarthy's. robert byrd had 100% rating from pro choice america. don't believe the lie these were conservative democrats waiting for a wink from nixon to become republicans. there was only one of about 18 liberal democratic segregationists that eventually became a republican. that was strom thurmond. he's the only one whose name you know. just one more point on the southern strategy this lie is pulled off by describing the entire south as if it were one state. no, there are the outer southern states and the dixie craft states in the middle. i guess i should say the southern strategy is this idea that republicans secretly appealed the democratic segregation for the dixie kratz and suddenly we swept the south. republicans of the south when the dixiecrats died out, something that's proveable by looking at the history, republicans were winning the outer southern states, texas, tennessee, kentu
gave the u.n. is simply here in washington and the woodrow wilson center a very clear fractional assessment of what drugs can do and how they're helping his government take care of some of the security problems. one of the things i don't think he has a knowledge is the degree to which that kind of intervention and the way that intervention seems in society generally is undermining the legitimacy of his transition of government. >> quite difficult. multiple wars going on. >> i had a very good interpreter who had an extended network of people. the went out to the south. remove from travel check to travel a share to travel shake. getting to the all question of signature strikes, i was riding in pickup trucks with a bunch of travel fighters. >> i am clearly a foreigner. take the resumption that this is the target. i might have been won, but the simple reality is if you take the time to do your homework and build a local relationship you can get a much richer data set. to sort of relying on third-party reports. they maintain a low profile, move around smoothly. literally moving from t
now move that the u.n. classified document of september 11, 2012 appearing above the signature of the ambassador be placed in the record. without objection, so ordered. the staff will distribute it. additionally, i move that the documents of march 28, 2012 we place in the record. without objection, so ordered. additionally -- and these will have to be printed -- the document of august 2, 2012 and of july 9, 2012 be placed in the record. without objection, so ordered. >> mr. chairman, to be clear, we already have the documents? >> in real time, a whistleblower has provided these documents. we confirm these documents are identical to the documents being withheld. it is the determination of the chair that these documents were responsive, on classified, and appropriate for discovery. >> i was just asking if we already had the documents. >> if you notice, i am looking at one on an ipad. we have some and others. they will be circulated to bauxites. they are now -- they will be circulated to both sides. they are now part of the hearing. ambassador, i do not like doing this. ultimately
: mccain. host: we have dennis from ohio. birthplace of neil armstrong. wire u.n. decided this morning? caller: -- why are you undecided this monring? -- morning? did this help to bring some clarity to you? caller: no. the vice president kept interrupting his coworker. he laughed a lot. i don't know if he thought the issues were funny. as far as the president and his running mate, obama said he has created a lot of jobs so the unemployment goes down, but he does not say whether that was manufacturing jobs, flipping hamburgers someplace, and and his cohort says if he gets elected, he will create 12,000 new jobs right away. well, are they in manufacturing? are they going to make government bigger than it is? neither party is clear on anything as far as i am concerned. as far as foreign policy, every time a foreign country sneezes, the united states has to run over to wipe their nose. we have spent millions of dollars over there in wars we are not going to win. i cannot see staying over there and getting our soldiers killed for nothing. that is what i think of the their party. host: that
contributor and a new book called "here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the loss of freedom." nice to see you. welcome to the show. >> good to be here. >> david: a moment from the debate where paul ryan defends himself on medicare, substantive argument about this particular issue. take a listen. >> they put a new obama care board in charge of cutting medicare each and every year to lead to deny care for current seniors. the board, 15 people. the president is supposed to appoint him next year and not one needs medical training. social security, if we don't shore up social security when we run out of the ious, and the program goes bankrupt, 25% across the board benefit cut kicks in on the current seniors in the middle of their retirement. we'll stop that happening. >> david: so that was a big moment for vice president biden hoping to pigeon hole congressman ryan on the medicare,, the thing he supported cutting that money on that program. who won that moment? >> guest: i think ryan was very impressive in defending his position on that. that was ryan's key vulnerabili
